Linda Trope - "When I create figures to be exact likenesses of each other, it takes great concentration and perseverance to get them exactly right. Sometimes I have to rework the figures several times in the pencil drawing stage to achieve the perfection that I am seeking."
The human figure as expressed in modern dance has always informed my art. Setting exaggerated poses of dance figures into fanciful landscapes or complex geometric repeat backgrounds, I achieve a painterly effect using a pointillist technique (stippling) employing archival translucent ink brush markers and small nib pens and overlaying three or more colors, working from lighter to darker colors to create increasingly intense levels of depth and color.
